Nigeria Would Begin To Regulate Digital Assets
In institutionalization news, Nigeria’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defined digital assets as securities unless the issuer proves the opposite. According to the regulatory body, the issuer will go through an assessment process to verify that the crypto assets are not securities if the SEC is not convinced, then the issuer will have to register the crypto-asset with the commission.
SEC stated that digital assets, which provide “alternative investment opportunities”, would be classified into four different categories for regulatory oversight. Nigerian SEC will register and approve all virtual assets, treating cryptocurrencies and tokens as securities and would be subject to the SEC regulations.
